Do You Need Professional Sore Throat Treatment?
If you have a sore throat, you may be trying to decide between using natural throat infection remedies and calling a doctor. Throat pain can often be relieved using the following at-home sore throat remedies:
- Taking over-the-counter pain medication, anti-inflammatory medication, or a decongestant
- Sipping warm liquids (for example, tea or soup)
- Sucking on a throat lozenge
- Gargling with salt water
However, if your throat is still sore after a few days, you should reach out to an experienced medical professional, such as the ones at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. After speaking with you about your symptoms, performing an examination, and conducting any necessary lab tests, we’ll recommend the sore throat treatment that’s best suited to your needs. For example, while strep throat treatment generally requires prescription antibiotics, treatment for a sore throat caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may instead involve histamine-2 blockers or antacids.
